How to Buy..... Track Lighting

Track lighting is the most functional lighting on the market. You can run it almost anywhere, and it can support all four basic lighting functions: Accent, Ambient, task and decorative. Track can be run from one power source, which is highly significant. Instead of calling an electrician to poke holes in the ceiling and run wires(and replaster and paint, etc), spotlights and decorative pieces can be placed anywhere on the track.

Track is purchased in lengths of 2 feet up to 12 feet in length. A power feed which either fits at the end of the track for new construction or in the middle also needs to be purchased. There are many types of track available and a seemingly infinte amount of decorative options. Look at some practical applications and certainly consider track for your lighting application

You can buy track inexpensively with regular type heads or you can buy low voltage track for a design statement: Below is our totally glass kitchen on suspended rail with glass heads
